Thanks for the compliment!
I made the pattern for the decals using CorelDRAW and had them cut at an arts supply store.
I'm assuming they're over the clear coat, I'd love to see a close up of how they look on top of the paint.
Yes, the decals are over the clear coat, but I'm thinking of covering them up with another layer(s) of clear lacquer to protect them from unraveling whenever something brushes against them (e.g. my inner thighs).
I'll try to post some pictures soon.
I'm considering having my CAAD10 Raw re-sprayed and I'm trying to figure out a decal solution.
I did a repaint job on my 12-year old Giant TCR five years ago using a white base coat and vinyl decals for the patterns, text, and trim. I covered the decals under five (5) layers of clear lacquer, wet sanding (400-grit) on the 3rd coat to even out the clear above the decals. It's still good - so far.
